HAMSTER ROLY

The pet-store punk. Banksy's little brother. Roly loves circles and fears nothing. That's just the way he rolls. Each of his journeys is just another lesson in the life of a little hamster. See the IN DETAIL section for more.

LIFE'S LITTLE PROBLEMS

When you look at life's little problems in enough detail, maybe they're not so scary after all.

GRIEFHOLE

A hedgehog, a rabbit and a TV, in a grubby little house in 1995.

My most recent short, this is being entered into international competitions this year.

GRANNY'S PINK HAT

Granny saved up all her coins. All her notes and this and that. And one sunny day last summer. Granny bought a bright pink hat.

This vintage-but-modern story, featuring many original illustrations from the 1960s, has been handed down through my family since and developed by each generation.

BOYPIGBUTTERFLY

A boy wanders through life with only a butterfly and a moth as advisers. Drawing on my degree in psychology (Freudian psychoanalysis in particular) these three characters are one and the same - conflicting manifestations of the ego, superego and id.. This short film premiered last year in the USA at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival and in the UK at the Southampton International Film Festival.

THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF LUCY CRUMP

Lucy loves the little tree in the corner of the car park. One day a leaf falls off, and the day after that more. Soon there are no leaves left.

This is an environmentally friendly tale, which reflects my hope that one day all the leaves and all the trees will grow back.

THE CRUMPTON STORM

The second of the Lucy Crump tales. It rains and it rains and it rains. Lucy watches in wonder as the ocean comes to town. In addition to the print version, this was produced as an app - see IN DETAIL section for more.

FIREBUG!

Crowdfunded through Kickstarter, this is the tale of one man's inexorable journey to his fate, like a moth to the flame.

See IN DETAIL section for more, and the FILM section for a presentation I made concerning its production.

POLITICAL ANIMALS

Just some of my favourite people. Exhibited in 2018 in We Built This City, Carnaby Street, London.

ELEFUNT BOY

A graffiti-based tale of one boy's acceptance of the fact he looks like an elephant. Sorry, elefunt.

THE DEVOLUTION OF MAN

Children in Shutley are not born, they are made. This comic horror is rooted in the urban myths of my hometown, Southampton.

MESSY LEE

There's something scary in the laundry. And it's telling Lee to tidy up!
